    Every year Planning Dept./IHLC Division holds an Elders/Youth Conference on different themes, this year it was "Uqapiaqta" - "Let's speak in Iñupiaq." each day we have different evening events, first night it was singspiration, second night potluck and last night Aggi-eskimo dance. We invite all the different dance group to perform for at aggi, some from Barrow Dancers, Nuvugmiut and Tagiuqmiut. In the Conference we do different workshop that pertain to the theme, like iñupiaq singing,learning the atchagat-iñupiaq alphabet, vowel sounds and iñupiaq numbers, iñupiaq traditional games and traditional hunting terminology.
